Default Who is the better passer? Rubio or CP3??

My first thread here...

Friend and I were having a lonnnnng basketball discussion, and I was talking about how Rondo's elite court vision made KG and PP look so much better than they were past their prime, not the other way around like some people thought. (Remember how so many were discrediting Rondo, saying "look at who he's playing with" to not give him the props he deserves?) Now that Rondo finally gets the respect he deserves as a past first PG, we were talking about how CP3 has better handles but Rondo is the better passer, my boy said "I may even say Rubio is a better passer than CP3"

I thought damn, good argument, Rubio maybe the worst shooter ever, but we talking strictly just passing. Who you guys got??

Probably CP3. Just because you can make flashier passes doesn't mean you are a better passer. CP3's a/t right now is incredible.

But it is interesting how good of a passer Rubio is without the threat of a jumper. That obviously takes away from some of his passing prowess and he still does what he does.

Good point about Rubio.

Better passer? Rubio. Better assist maker? CP3. What I mean by that is Rubio will make really hard passes to guys cutting that only he could do. Whereas Chris Paul will drive and kick/dish/lob and find the open man. Chris Paul's style of passing is more effective but Rubio's takes more skill.
